Thrilled to finally be able to share our new guest bathroom reveal with all of you… This space has taken on a complete overhaul from floor to ceiling and all I have to say is, thank goodness!!
This 20 year old home had no upgrades whatsoever and the secondary bathroom was in horrible shape. Not only was this space tired looking but a previous leak from the shower caused all kinds of issues which gave us no choice but to gut everything down to the studs. We removed the sub-floor to double check for mold and to see how the insulation looked underneath. Luckily it wasn’t as extensive as we previously thought…
Let’s begin with the bathroom before renovation ~
Oak and linoleum are two words that come to mind with these before pictures. ;) Can you say YUCK?
Even though we needed to work some magic on this space, I have to admit I was thrilled to have the opportunity to change everything. As seen in the before pics this bathroom prior to renovation was dark and small.. It had more doors than any one bathroom needs. Three in this small space to be precise. One door led from the vanity section to the shower/tub/toilet space and then there were two bedroom doors from which to enter from. I knew right away that the interior wall needed to go in order to open the bathroom more. That took care of the interior door. (thanks goodness!) It was so tight and crowded with the existing wall I don’t know how anyone fit in the bathroom.
As soon as the wall was removed the room doubled in size and light flooded the space. Yay!
This original Jack and Jill bathroom housed a small vanity with 2 sinks. To allow for more counter space I placed an extra wide RH Kent vanity with one sink in it’s place. It holds just the right amount of cabinets and drawers for my guests.
Love the Grafton pulls that came with this piece as they have always been a favorite of mine.
With the floor I went with an all marble design from Jeffrey Court. The tiny gray and white hex tiles look so cute in this space and the shape is one I’ve always loved. They also compliment the marble countertop on the RH vanity and the marble material elevates the bathroom to a more upscale look and style that I love.
I have to bring your attention to the gorgeous glass egg knobs from Emtek. These Hampton knobs fit so comfortably in the hand I have them on almost every door in the house. We are crazy about them!
Pretty little fur throw is from Hobby Lobby.
Knowing I was keeping with my all white theme I selected a beautiful white subway tile with bevel edge from Sonoma tile for the shower and niche. I love the interest and detail it provides especially as I’ve carried the tile and around the windows and niche all the way to the ceiling. All grout in the bathroom is Bright White from Bostik. I have found this to be the brightest white available and used it everywhere in my home… including the kitchen.
I deliberately left the glass doors off from the shower area and instead chose to hang a clean white waffle shower curtain from PB.. I hate the grime so often found in door slides. Plus, they cut off the room visually which is exactly what I didn’t want.
The Yates double sconces from Lamps Plus are a key feature in this bathroom. Not only do I love their design but the shine and size help fill the large wall. Having two sconces on either side of the mirror makes this room so light and bright… Important for my guests and Emma.
I’ve placed another RH Lugarno train rack to hold the towels in this bathroom just above the toilet and right next to the bathtub for convenience. I found that I loved the one in the master so much our guests deserved one as well.
Accessories always make a space… I went with a pretty toilet paper stand rather than drilling holes into my new vanity. I love this polished nickel Newberry piece from Restoration Hardware. Extra rolls of TP is kept in a glass container right next to it for easy refills.
You may notice the lower placed outlet in these pics also. I made sure to have one installed on both sides of the vanity below counter height and out of site. I hate unsightly outlets in the middle of walls.
You may remember from my Master Bath before and after (click here to see more) my favorite Brizo polished nickel faucet. I love it’s classic style and warm polished nickel shine so much I’ve placed it in all bathrooms in my home.
I found my rectangular mirror at Homegoods. It’s one of the prettiest I’ve seen for the price (just $99) and it’s narrower size fits perfectly behind the sconce shades which was so important.
We are so happy with how this beautiful space has turned out… It just goes to show that any room can be made elegant and stylish without going crazy with color and design. Sometimes I find simple and clean is best when approaching small spaces.
